Aquinas Academy Parents’ Association (AAPA)

The AAPA is the primary means by which parents are involved with the Academy, providing many committee opportunities for parent participation as well as coordinating large fundraising efforts to support major projects on campus. By supporting the school through volunteering time and talent, parents also get to know other parents. All parents/guardians of Aquinas Academy students are automatically a member of the association.

AAPA Events 2017-18

Uniform Swap – July 18 & 19

The annual Uniform Swap is a great opportunity to find uniform pieces to fit growing children and outfit new students— all for free! The locker rooms will be available to try on clothing.

Gym shorts will also be available to try on and order. Please recall that all students, grades 1 through 10, must have Aquinas gym shorts for gym class. No other shorts are acceptable. (Kindergarten students wear play clothes on gym day.) › Dress Code

While the swap shop is active, we will also have all lost and found items on display. If you are looking for a particular item that your child lost, please come early to claim it. Otherwise, families are welcome to claim these items before they are donated to Goodwill.

Wednesday, July 18 from 5:00–8:00 PM

Thursday, July 19 from noon–2:00 PM
